silhouette grass birthday

Happy Friday!  After a gorgeous week with spring like weather winter has returned!  Last night I had to work my one shift this week and they were calling for blizzard like conditions!    Only 5 to 10 cm of snow but with gusting wind at 50 km to 100 km an hour!  My drive home was crazy,  I could barely see ahead of me!  Thankfully I only live 5 minutes away!  This morning Ariel told us that the snowman's hat in the front yard was in the back yard, you could just see the top she has some eye sight actually being able to spot it!  Today it's cold but thankfully not windy!

In my last post I mentioned making a male birthday card with the same patterned paper as in that post so I did!  I need more male birthday cards!

Products used:  All Stamps Hero Arts, friends def, Silhouette Grass, sentiment. Buttons PTI, dies ric rac mat stack PTI, pp My Minds eye.

I thought it would be different to use only a portion of the silhouette grass by having a die shape of it.  I have a few more ideas doing that!  I usually go quite simple when making male cards but this one has a bit more to it!  I think it's because I let it sit on my craft table for a bit while I studied what I should do to it!  I still kept it clean by not distressing any of it with ink! 

It's been a bit since I shared any cute stories with you!  The other day I was holding Ariel in my arms (and loving every minute) and telling her how much I loved her.  And how having her was one of the best days of my life.  Ariel than tells me "The best day for me was when you had Carter!"  How sweet is that?  She loves her brother so much and when she said that it reminded me of how happy she was when we brought him home!  They are adorable together and love each other so much and I am so happy about that!  I have shared this photo before but I think it really shows the love and joy she had when we brought him home:



This picture always makes me melt!!!  Well I am off we are having company tonight so I gotta clean up the house!
